Was there ever a Trojan War? Have archeologists found a Trojan horse? Is the current excavation site the legendary city of Troy? These are some of the questions that contemporary visitors to Troy ask. Troy, as a heritage site in northwest Turkey, is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and is a much-visited tourist attraction in a national park, the borders of which correspond with Homer’s definition of the landscape of Troad. The story of the excavations at Troy, which date back to the mid-19th century, is perhaps not as popular as Homer’s Illiad, but it is not less glamorous. This session looks at the archeological history of Troy, the fate of the famous Treasures of Priam, the king of Troy, and the archeologists who contributed to the story of Troy.
